Title: McCain Calls For U.S. To Consider Arming Syrian Protesters

Sen. John McCain on Tuesday said the United States should consider smuggling weapons into Syria to help unarmed anti-government protesters targeted by the Syrian military, whose ongoing crackdown continues to push the nation toward civil war.

“We should start considering all options, including arming the opposition,” Mr. McCain, Arizona Republican and the ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, told reporters in Washington.

The comment triggered a harsh reaction at the State Department, where spokeswoman Victoria Nuland asserted that “we don’t think more arms into Syria is the answer.”

Ms. Nuland said U.S. officials “never take anything off the table,” but she reiterated assertions made by President Obama on Monday that peace in Syria still can be negotiable without an international military intervention.

While the U.S. and NATO forces backed opposition forces who toppled Libyan leader Moammar Gadhafi last year, Ms. Nuland said that “Libya was a completely different situation” from that unfolding now in Syria.

U.S. officials think the answer is to get “national democratic dialogue, for the violence to stop, for the [Assad] regime’s tanks to come out of the cities and then for monitors to be able to go back in,” Ms. Nuland said.

The United Nations has estimated that more than 5,400 people have been killed in Syria since the uprising against Mr. Assad began last March.

Yesterday’s exchange in Washington came as world leaders scrambled to forge a new strategy toward Syria after Russia and China vetoed a U.N. resolution demanding Mr. Assad end his military’s violent crackdown on civilians.

If a Bottom 99 non Israeli Firster said this, about the USSA/Israel we'd be on a No Fly List and a candidate for drone 'surveillence':

"In 2005, surgical strikes to destroy Iran’s nuclear capacity would have been comparatively easy. After seven years of deep digging, the logistical requirements are quite different. Senior planners at the Pentagon say privately that it would be very difficult to destroy centrifuges in bunkers, and that aerial attacks would concentrate on killing the political and military leadership as well as destroying command and control.

Perhaps there is a covert capability that could put suitcase bombs into the tunnels leading to the bunkers; I know nothing about such things. It seems likely, however, that stopping Iran from getting nuclear weapons would be a messy and bloody business rather than a well-defined surgical operation. It is too bad the West did not have the good sense to correct the problem in 2005. However much it costs in Iranian blood and well-being, it’s still worth it.
